Here is a bar stool I made recently.
It’s pretty straight forward. It’s made from aromatic red cedar from my place here in south west Missouri.
I cut the tenons by hand. They were roughed out with a machete and then fine tuned with a draw knife on a shave horse. The finish is a satin lacquer. I wiped it down with with acetone before I sprayed it.
To get the legs even I ran a leveled string across my shop door and flipped the stool upside down and marked each leg against the string. Once I cut them, I fine tuned them with a belt sander.
